Planning Appeals

All is not lost if your planning application is refused! You do have the right to appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.

We understand that navigating the intricacies of planning appeals can be a daunting task. Whether you’re seeking permission for a new project or challenging an unfavourable planning decision, our expert team is here to guide you through the process with confidence and expertise.

At MP Chartered Architects, we’re committed to simplifying the planning appeals journey for you. Our wealth of experience, in-depth knowledge of planning regulations, and a proven track record of success make us your ideal partner in this often challenging undertaking.

Unlock The Potential Of Planning Appeals

Appealing a planning decision can be a crucial step in achieving your development goals and overcoming obstacles that may have arisen during the initial application process.

When your initial planning application is rejected or faces delays, an appeal offers a second opportunity to gain approval for your project. It allows you to address concerns or objections raised during the first application and present a stronger case. Seeking professional assistance from experienced architects and planning experts can significantly increase your chances of a successful appeal. They can help you navigate the complexities of planning regulations, ensuring your appeal is comprehensive and well-prepared.

Appeals can also be addressed to specific issues that led to the rejection of your application. This tailored approach allows you to focus on the aspects of your project that may need adjustment or further clarification.

We are pleased that we can say that we have a very high success rate with the cases we have submitted to appeal.

We understand the intricacies of planning in the Essex area, giving you a distinct advantage.

Our fees are very competitive and we can agree fixed fees for most appeals or, in occasional cases, an ‘all or nothing’ fee, where we feel there is a reasonable chance of success and the client doesn’t want to incur any additional fees until the approval adds value to the project.

To Begin

Get In Contact

After you get in contact with us we will begin the process with an initial consultation. During this consultation, we will thoroughly assess your project and the reasons for the planning refusal. This includes reviewing the council’s decision and understanding the key issues with your submission. Our experienced architects will provide expert advice on how to address the council’s concerns and maximise your chances of success. We will collaborate closely with you to ensure that your goals and visions are considered throughout the process.

Next Steps

Planning Appeal Submission

Based on our assessment, we will then develop a detailed design that addresses the council’s concerns while aligning with your project’s objectives. Our team will assist in preparing all the necessary documentation, including planning statements and architectural plans, to support your appeal. We can submit the planning appeal on your behalf, ensuring that all the required materials are complete and accurate.


Planning Appeal Management

We will engage with the local planning authority, making representations on your behalf to advocate for your project. We will also negotiate with planning officers and appeal inspectors to present your case effectively.
